The generalized linear varying-coefficient model is an important extension of the generalized linear model. The model structure allows the coefficient to be a curve function with different time. Since local quasi-likelihood estimation is useful for nonparametric modeling in generalized linear models, we extend three estimation methods from it for the generalized varying-coefficient model when there are data missing at random: the local quasi-likelihood estimator using only complete-data, the local weighted quasi-likelihood estimator and the local quasi-likelihood estimator with imputed values. We develop the local quasi-likelihood imputation methods for estimating the mean function of the response variable. Our simulation results show that the proposed imputation methods perform better than both the one based on complete-case data only and the weighted method.
